Our IGCSE English Language homeschooling course will enable your child to communicate clearly and effectively, and to:
• Employ a wide vocabulary
• Use correct spelling, punctuation and grammar
• Develop a personal writing style
• Write for a variety of audiences
These skills are vital for entry to higher education and in the workplace. A good grade in IGCSE English Language (C or 4 or better) is evidence of these skills. It will satisfy the English Language entrance requirements of universities, and meet the needs of employers everywhere.IGCSE Course Information

“Studied abroad? Homeschooled? In a non-English speaking country?!” They were worried and I was too. Would I even be able to compete with a normal student? Was I disadvantaged? Nervous and terribly apprehensive, I sat my exams.
It was a miracle! Paper after paper completed, and with such ease that it amazed me. All of Wolsey’s resources had ensured that I was comfortable during my examination. I recently received my results and there are: A’s in Math, English Language, Geography, Chemistry, Physics, German, and an A* in English Literature.
All I can say is thank you, God, and thank you, Wolsey Hall Oxford.
